Overview

This practical guide shows you how to re-create your school so that everyone is continually learning how to learn; - and so that the accumulation of knowledge is considered a privilege. Find out how to visualize your ideal school, assess your school's starting point, work toward goals you and your teachers set together, and monitor progress and make course corrections. Build an authentic learning community in your school to encourage "teaching as professional practice." Make your school into one in which teachers and students work together to construct their own knowledge instead of just receiving it from others. Recognize and realize student learning and student interest in learning as your school's primary mission. Start by emphasizing teachers' professional expertise and encouraging their decision-making capabilities. Help teachers acquire, develop, and use their professional competence and knowledge to improve their teaching practice.
